Great New Star, A
Ken Smith sez: Dinah Shore sings her heart out in this theatrical commercial for the unmemorable 1953 Chevrolet BelAir. Possibly the only film that contains the complete "See The U.S.A. In Your Chevrolet" lyrics.

Opens on set of television studio. There is a behind the scenes look at television production.
Dinah Shore singing an entire song (about spring). Then she addresses the camera to talk about the beauty of this year's Chevy.
Also: Dinah singing: See the U.S.A. in your Chevrolet.
Sign: "Quiet please"

Subject: Not a Production Chevy but a Prototype!
A wonderful film, but the car shown is a preproduction model. The production '53 model did NOT have the rear vent windows! The vent windows were deleted at the last minute before production commenced.
Subject: Jam Handy was amazing!
By the way folks, it's "Jam Handy Productions". I've seen it called other things here and there around the site, but it's Jam Handy. Trust me.
Some of these other film companies from Detroit (those that did industrials and commercials) were just the Jam Handy guys, churning them out under different company names. In a few cases, it WAS a different company, but it was the same old Handy crew doing it.
You can thank the stagehands of Detroit IATSE Local 38 for these wonderous films, and I'm glad to have some of them as friends and fellow stagehands. I've shown some of these films to them, and you should see the smiles as they say "Hey, I remember working on that one!". (grin)
